Nathaniel Winsor Jr. House (479 Washington Street, Duxbury)


A fantastic evening celebrating Duxbury’s bootlegging history! Join the DRHS at the historic Nathaniel Winsor, Jr. House, especially decorated as a 1930s Speakeasy, an illicit establishment that sold alcoholic drinks during prohibition. Guests to Speakeasy Night will enjoy a little bit of history combined with delicious food and drink, a water-front view, and live music. 

  • Historic house decorated for the theme by notable decorator, Kate McCusker, Theodore & Co.
  • Jazz Music
  • Hear stories of Duxbury’s Prohibition history, presented by Duxbury’s beloved Town Historian, Tony Kelso (truly…he has the best stories!)
  • Raw Bar donated by Duxbury’s own, Island Creek Oysters
  • Food & Bar provided by Boston Beer Company/Sam Adams

But, most of all, keep quiet, and don’t forget the password
